Borderlands 3 Shift Codes List – VIP Codes, Golden Keys, & Rewards

We're taking a detailed look at Shift Codes, Golden Keys, and the VIP Program in Borderlands 3!

Our Borderlands 3 Shift Codes Guide features a detailed look at how-to redeem and take advantage of these gifted codes! With Shift Codes you can gain access to cosmetics by obtaining Golden Keys! Those keys lead to you pretty sweet loot within the game, and can help you along your journey as you explore BL3. If you want to go even further, you can sign up for free to the VIP Rewards program as a Vault Insider and get a bunch of additional rewards!

What are Shift Codes?

Shift Codes are used to collect Golden Keys which unlock a chest on Sanctuary that will reward you will loot! They are distributed sometimes at random by following Gearbox and the Borderlands social channels, or they can be distributed during various events. You need a Shift Account to use the keys, so be sure to sign up for one.

How-to Get Golden Keys

Golden Keys can be obtained via Shift Codes or the VIP Rewards program. These Golden Keys can be used within the game to open up a chest that will give you random rewards. These rewards are usually a few weapons of different types that are at your current level. You can also get armor and grenade mods as well. Golden Keys are redeemable at Sanctuary 3, which is your main hub in Borderlands 3.

Collecting Golden Keys/Rewards

Once you get into the game, you might be wondering how-to obtain the keys. Well, go into a game, open up the game menu, and press Social. You should see an envelope icon at the top, press that to go to the Mail menu. From here, you should be able to collect any VIP rewards or Golden Keys you've obtained!

VIP Rewards

VIP Rewards include various cosmetics, golden keys, wallpapers, and even weapons for the game! Take a look at all of the rewards right here. While you are there, you might as well spin the Weaponizer and receive a free weapon for Borderlands 2 & 3!

Heads & Skins

There are currently eight different cosmetics you can purchase with VIP points, two for each character. The heads cost 4,000 and the skins cost 3,000 points.

Golden Keys

Keys are available for 1,500 points, but you can't currently purchase them for Borderlands 3. They are only available for the previous games. I wouldn't waste your points on these, there's still a lot of Shift Keys floating around for those games at the moment.

Wallpapers

If you want to dress up your desktop or mobile device, you can purchase wallpapers for 500 points each.

Guns

Believe it or not, you can purchase guns with your points as well. For 4,000 points you can purchase a variety of different guns, some for each game in the franchise. The Borderlands 3 options are level 10, so they could be useful to you while you are leveling up. These weapons count towards the eight reward weapons you need to obtain to unlock the special legendary Maliwan weapon for Borderlands 3!

    1. They are coming out pretty infrequently recently. They were coming out every few days for a while, and then once a week. Now it’s bi-weekly or once a month it looks like.
